Innovative Discoveries Showcased at Chatham Middle School Science & Technology Fair

Local Announcements: Winners of the 2024 Science and Technology Fair in CMS

The Chatham Middle School recently hosted its annual Science & Technology Fair, showcasing innovative projects from students in grades six through eight. The fair took place in the school gym and featured entries from each grade level.

Miles Schuster, a sixth-grade student, investigated the impact of outside temperature on the efficiency of solar panels. Jack Galvin, also a sixth-grade student, studied which fruit or vegetable contained the most energy. Lucy Tassinari and Logan Van Wie, an eighth-grade team, examined the effectiveness of various heat protectants.

The students participating in the fair developed a hypothesis or technical problem and used either the Scientific Method or Problem Solving Method to test their theories or find solutions. The judging was done by Chatham’s high school and middle school science and technology faculty during class hours, with classes visiting to view the projects. The fair was open to the public in the evening, where the winners were announced at the end of the event.

The winners of the fair were Miles Schuster for his work on solar panels in sixth grade, Jack Galvin for his study on fruit and vegetable energy content in seventh grade, and Lucy Tassinari and Logan Van Wie for their examination of heat protectants in eighth grade. Congratulations to all students who participated in the fair and demonstrated their scientific and technological skills!
